Hepatitis C is a viral infection caused by hepatitis C virus (HCV). Hepatitis C virus is a blood borne virus that causes liver disease and can cause acute and chronic hepatitis. Infection may be caused through injection drug use, transfusion of unscreened blood products, unsafe injection practices, sexual contact and from infected mother to her baby. Diagnosis of HCV infection can be done by screening for anti-HCV antibodies along with a serological test to confirm the viral infection. Nucleic acid test for HCV ribonucleic acid (RNA) is often performed in cases to confirm chronic infection. The World Health Organization estimates that 71 million people are living with chronic hepatitis C infection globally. Disease incidence and prevalence are not the only factors influencing the Hepatitis C Tests market. Sales of these devices are also heavily impacted by fluctuations in the number of pregnant women, semen donations, whole blood donations, and source plasma donations.
The predominant devices used for Hepatitis C detection are enzyme immunoassay (EIA) tests, owing to their high specificity and sensitivity as well as their ability to be adapted for high-throughput testing. EIA Hepatitis C devices are used for disease diagnosis as well as screening of whole blood, source plasma, and sperm donations as well as for pregnant women screening. Nucleic acid amplification (NAAT) are sometimes used as confirmatory tests for samples that have already tested positive for HCV through EIA. NAAT are also used for serial monitoring of Hepatitis C patients, to aid in management of the disease and to inform treatment strategies i.e. with anti-retroviral agents.
